Thanks for your time to reply. That's really a non-option for me. I use mc on
many versions of many distros on many multiboot systems, and would never be
able to spend the time keeping up with the 40+ different mc installs whether
or not I had rebuilt if I even had the time to do that, which I don't. I'm a
user/tester, not a programmer. I need mc to solve problems, not be problems.
